THE #OBAMACARE HORROR LINKS: Obamacare plans won’t cover treatment at top hospitals
The good news, if you want to call it that, is that roughly 1.6 million Americans have enrolled in ObamaCare so far.
The not-so-good news is that 1.46 million of them actually signed up for Medicaid. If that trend continues, it could bankrupt both federal and state governments.
Medicaid is already America’s third-largest government program, trailing only Social Security and Medicare, as a proportion of the federal budget. Almost 8 cents out of every dollar that the federal government spends goes to Medicaid. That’s more than $265 billion per year.
Great. States who refused the medicaid expansion are looking like serious geniuses right about now.
Obamacare has a hidden minimum wage hike in it.
